Black Bean Burger with Sauteed Mushrooms & fresh Cilantro

This is a great recipe for leftovers...I made it last night for the family for dinner,
And was able to have another one for lunch this afternoon with the kido!
Still have enough in the fridge for another 2 portions. I thought of making a fresh salsa for the top but the tomatoes at the store were not looking so hot.

  • 2 1/2 cups cooked black beans-drained
  • 2 tbsp veggie oil
  • 1 onion-minced
  • 2 cloves garlic-minced
  • 1 stalk celery-minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp Dijon
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper

In a saute pan, heat oil, Add onions,garlic,and celery. Saute for 3-4 minutes.
Add spices, saute for about 3 more minutes.
In a large bowl combine beans and onion mixture together.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mush it together really well.
Shape into patties and fry in a pan with a little oil, until it forms a crust on each side.

  1. How interesting! That is a great way to enjoy burgers.

  2. Hi Sook!

    They are much more tastier and better for you then the processed veggie burgers!

  3. Looks so good! I like homemade bean burgers. They are soo much better than the store bought ones! I agree.

  4. Mmm...I love bean burgers. Too bad your grocery store's tomatoes weren't up to the salsa challenge, that would have been a great topping!
